A Sayulita Must

Don Pedro's Restaurant in Sayulita Mexico sits under a giant thatched palapa surrounded by panoramic views of ocean and jungle, and offers expertly prepared Mediterranean-style cuisine with a Mexican influence. The restaurant is nestled on Sayulita's golden beach and guests delight in an unforgettable dining experience while surfers ride gentle waves in full view. Now, with the addition of the new beach patio and bar, the view is even better and the dining more enjoyable. Be sure to check out Salsa Night, every Monday at 8:00 PM during the season (Oct - June). Come at 7:00 PM for salsa lessons. Thursdays bring Gypsy Flamenco with Latcho and Andrea at 7:00 PM.

The Story of Don Pedro's

In 1992, two cousins, Damien and Nicholas, set off from Los Angeles on a surf and culinary adventure. Making their way south, they stumbled upon a diamond-in-the-rough called Sayulita. With one phone line in town at the Paleteria and hardly any other services, Sayulita was a dusty fishing village that time seemed to have forgotten. Tucked into a jungle-clad bay with a consistent rivermouth break, Sayulita's serene natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the locals impressed the two travelers, so much that they decided to stay. And thus a dream began to crystallize - to build a world-class restaurant on the beach of this little paradise. Like many passionate dreamers, they were laughed at, told it would never work. But true to the old adage "if you build it, they will come", they did... and the people came. Over fifteen years later, they keep coming back.

Giving Back

From the onset of their experience in Sayulita, Damien and Nicholas have always believed in improving the quality of life for the locals who call this place home. They financed the restoration of the malecon and fortification of the beach area. They have repeatedly contributed to the development of the growing town's sewer system and financed upgrades to the local power grid. Most importantly, Don Pedro's has employed at least one member of every founding family of the village. Don Pedro's continues to be the largest employer in Sayulita.

Nicholas Parrillo
Executive Chef /Co-owner

Chef Parrillo received formal training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and matriculated at the Culinary Institute of America. He further honed his skills in fine establishments such as Rex IL Ristorante of Los Angeles, Prego's of Beverly Hills, Rebecca's of Venice Beach and I Cugini of Santa Monica. For Chef Parrillo, Don Pedro's is a dream come true - a culinary laboratory where the freshest local ingredients and Mexican flavors meet classical Mediterranean and cutting-edge Californian techniques to create a distinctly unique dining experience. Chef Parrillo, his wife and two children live on a ranch just outside Sayulita where he grows many of his special organic ingredients.

Damien Porter
Executive Director/Co-owner

Upon graduating UC Berkeley in 1992, Damien set off on a journey to ride the ultimate wave. What started as an "Endless Summer" surf safari turned into a visionary enterprise in a foreign land. Throughout his extensive global travels, Damien was always drawn to the local cultures that embraced him. In Sayulita, the genuine hospitality of the village convinced him of the tremendous potential for a world-class gourmet experience just steps away from the surf. Damien lives in Sayulita where he oversees several businesses and still surfs any chance he gets. Damien, Nicholas and the Don Pedro's family welcome you to enjoy this little paradise on earth.

Perfect!!!
We are so happy we chose Don Pedro's to cater our daughter's wedding! The food was fantastic and the service was suberb, classy so professional! Not to mention the phenomenal view at the Palapa! They do not skip one little detail. Our guests are still taking about it and we would not have changed anything.

Thank you Don Pedros for making it all so memorable!

My return to Don Pedro's
I was in Sayulita for Courtney and Storm's wedding six years back and ate here many times during my stay. Came back here in Feb with friends to meet my family. It still is a great place to eat and socialize. Our group's ages (two to 70), we were treated well, received excellent service and off course, had great food.

Not clean and cheap liquor
Sitting at the bar I noticed a rinsing only of drink glasses and filling 3-4 ‘ tequila ‘ bottles with an unmarked clear liquid from a 5 gallon jug that was under bar on the floor

Response from Owner/Manager on 02-14-2018
Audrey,

Thanks for your observations. The clear jug you mention is Orendain white tequila (100% Blue Agave Weber)...we buy this in bulk and can provide registered receipts or facturas from the proveyor if you would like further assurance of our product integrity. We use this only for well tequila. The bar staff dispenses this into the smaller bottles to fit the bar rack to speed up the service. Of course the placing of any bottle or container on the floor is a violation of our hygiene protocol; they should have not set this on the floor but on a shelf in the stock area. I am sorry that you were alarmed and I hope you addressed this with our staff at the time. Did you speak to the bartender or manager about this? Saludos

Home away from home
We spent many days on the beach adjacent to Don Pedro's and really enjoyed their beach food and drink service. We were thrilled that they even reserved us a place at the bar so we could watch our beloved Seattle Seahawks play on Christmas Eve! Will be back!
